Mandukya Karika

By: Swami Gaudapada - Read: September 13, 2023 - Rating: 8/10

The Mandukya Upanishad is the most concise of the Indian philosophy texts. It's considered an exhaustive overview of Advaita Vedanta, which is basis for non-dualism and has inspired many Western philosophies.

It usually comes with the Karika, which is a short commentary on it written by Swami Gaudapada, one of the famous original thinkers behind Advaita.

It's filled with great analogies for understanding non-dualism, along with several overly religious or complex descriptions that could benefit from simplification.

You can find it here - be warned, it's a challenging read.
